Award-winning charity Brook is using Cezanne HR’s software solution to improve the quality of its people data and underpin a major change programme.

Brook is the UK’s leading provider of sexual health services and advice for young people under 25 – and this year’s winner of the Charity Times HR Management Award.

The organisation has recently undergone a large-scale change process, moving from 17 independent local charities to one national body in an extremely short space of time. This presented a significant challenge in HR terms, with the need to standardise practices and processes across the country, while at the same time consolidating and validating the mass of employee data being held by the previously separate charities.

Tim Scott, Head of People and Organisational Development, recognised the need for an HR software system that would give the charity one central repository for data on its 500 plus staff. He chose Cezanne HR’s solution because of its flexibility to deal with what he describes as the “eccentricities” of the organisation.
